Mostly good 4 stars by SnappyAngel Feb 09, 2013 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I like this overall, for the reasons others have listed. It's easy to use and does the job well. There is one drawback, though, people should be warned about. More than once, I've opened an encrypted Word document, made several changes to it, hitting the "save" button at every turn, then closed the document only to have an error occur and all the changes I've made disappear, even though I supposedly "saved" the document several times. But that doesn't happen to me often. Overall I find this a handy program. show Review details
Simple, easy and efficient encryption! 5 stars by busybusy Aug 17, 2012 (Read all my 193 reviews)
The installation was a snap, along with the integration into explorer. A simple right-click on a file and you are ready to encrypt/decrypt. Does it get any simpler then that? Not really. I give it Two-Thumbs Up! show Review details
Almost great, if it could encrypt folders 3 stars by Svenni212000211 Dec 18, 2011
This is the second best free file encrytion program. If the program could encrypt both files and folders it would be on top there with the current winner Sophos Free Encryption. The option to encrypt the whole folder and not just the files, makes it easyer to send secret files on e-mail or services like MediaFire show Review details
